Thinking*Through*Design

Well, I have failed to mention that I am one of the Thoughtful Girls on the new Design blog Thinking*Through*Design! Our first design challenge was posted on Thursday as well as my first assignment which focused on analogous color! The nice thing about this challenge blog is that it helps you work through your LOs -- why you are doing what. Kind of neat!

Check out the full first post and the other girls' reveals! Be sure to play along with the challenge too! We want to see your work too!

Here is my LO with my "thought" on the process of making an analogous color LO! TFL!

My Thoughts: The analogous color assignment scared me a little because I have never used the color wheel much. I thought the best way to do it would be to put some of the colors in a wheel form on my layout and utilized the ever so trendy star burst pattern. In the star burst pattern and throughout the layout I added dark blues, royal blues, light blues, and turquoises to span the "blue" portion of the color wheel. To top it off and add one more analogous color, I added the bright green behind the photos and a few pieces of bright green washi tape.
